Week 2: “The Weight Of Being Human” – QSS collaboration with artist and curator Moran Been-noon

Week 2: “The Weight Of Being Human” – QSS collaboration with artist and curator Moran Been-noon

“I started this week with looking at images of heads and thinking of the phrase “heavy is the head that wears the crown”. While this reference stayed behind in the actual work selection, the work I selected has a certain weight, or gravity, to it. In the process the shape of the body became relevant to the sense of weight I was interested in, so the selection is really an expression of the weight of being human, its politics, its history, the everyday of living, ageing, and feeling.” Moran Been-noon
